|Kongsberg simulators for new Maersk facility|
|Tuesday, 10 January 2012 16:18|
Kongsberg Maritime simulators have been selected for the forthcoming MOSAIC 2 (Maersk Offshore Simulation and Innovation Centre) facility at Maersk Training in Svendborg, Denmark.
Building officially commenced on the state-of-the-art new facility in November 2011. The new training facility expands on the existing MOSAIC facility in Svendborg, which opened in February 2010 and uses offshore simulators supplied by Kongsberg to train Maersk Supply Services personnel. The agreement between Kongsberg and Maersk in December covers delivery of a range of simulators and ongoing support that will act as the platform for offshore drilling operations training at MOSAIC 2.
The MOSAIC 2 simulator delivery is scheduled to start within six months and includes a Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator with the flexibility to be configured as various vessels – such as a control room onboard a floating semi-submersible rig, a jack-up towmaster station, or an anchor-handling vessel. The new simulator will be mounted on a motion platform. Together with Kongsberg’s K-Chief 700 automation system, K-Pos Dynamic Positioning Trainer and a Ballast Control system, it will give the crews a highly realistic experience in a genuine environment.
MOSAIC 2 will be used to train personnel from Maersk Drilling and other rig operators and oil companies. The new campus will accommodate the new suite of offshore simulators, providing facility to perform advanced team-training, which is important to increase competencies for minimising injuries, whilst increasing efficiency. Crews from Maersk Supply Service will also use the new facilities.
The scope of supply also includes a Neptune Engine Room Simulator with BigView interactive touch screen technology and three new engine models specially developed for advanced drill rig and other offshore operation training. In addition, a brand new Riser Management Simulator and a crane simulator are included with the final delivery scheduled for 2013. The long-term contract also includes a service support program, which will commit the two parties to continuing their simulator training partnership at MOSAIC throughout the next decade.
